Momentos musicales: Nellie the Elephant (Toy Dolls)

No suele ser éste un estilo que nos vaya mucho en la Redacción Extraña, pero he de reconocer que tanto el vídeo como la canción de Nellie the Elephant de los Toy Dolls me hace mucha gracia. La descubrí gracias a este post de Yota, porque resulta que una canción de Cägo de Hez Mägo de Oz es una versión de esta canción.

Al turrón:



¡Ataque lyrics!

To Bombay a travelling circus came.
They brought an intelligent elephant,
and Nellie was her name.

One dark night she slipped her iron chain,
and off she ran to Hindustan,
and was never seen again.

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh

Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and said goodbye to the circus,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and trundled off to the jungle,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.

Night by night she danced to the circus band.
When Nellie was leading the big parade.
she looked so proud and grand

No more tricks for Nellie to perform.
They taught her how to take a bow,
and she took the crowd by storm

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh

Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and said goodbye to the circus,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and trundled off to the jungle,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.

The head of the heard was calling far, far away.
They met one night in silver light
on the road to Mandalay.

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh

Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and said goodbye to the circus,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and trundled off to the jungle,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.

Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and said goodbye to the circus,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and trundled off to the jungle,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.

Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and said goodbye to the circus,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
trump, trump, trump.
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and trundled off to the jungle,
off she rode with a trumpety trump,
truuuuuuump!, truuuuuuump!, truuuuuuump!

"trump,
trump, trump, trump..."

Como me gusta el punk, pero lo mejor suele ser de los 80's.

No es santo de mi devoción. Es más, casi no me gusta ningún grupo punk salvo contadas excepciones como estos Toy Dolls.

Mi música favorita es de los ochenta, claro.

Yota dijo...

Pero ojo, que es una versión de una canción tradicional irlandesa.

Eso si, he visto en directo dos veces a los Toy Dolls y cuando la tocan es una auténtica fiesta.

Miguel N4 dijo...

En realidad, tiene toda la pinta de que un concierto completo de Toy Dolls debe ser una fiesta de principio a fin. A mí me gustaría verlos alguna vez, desde luego.
